The state Department of Environmental Conservation has scheduled a statewide free fishing weekend this summer on June 25-26, and another free day on Nov. 11. Anyone can fish fresh or marine waters of the state and no fishing or recreational marine fishing registry is required.This event started in 1991 to allow all people the opportunity to sample the incredible fishing New York State has to offer. Since no license is required, it is the perfect time to take a friend or relative fishing.
